acting on genius

Everyone once in awhile you hear a great idea...and actually ACT on it. well today, I acted on one.
first a little history, I have three kids that have never really been into 'toys', the one thing they all love and that lasts is dress up. So we have A LOT of dress up stuff and I've gone through idea after idea on storage solutions..under the bed drawers, bins in their closets, giant tubs in the living room...i've tried it all and lately the girls and I have been having small major blowouts discussions about putting their clothes away and it always ends with "but the dress up is always in the way." 

So yesterday I was telling my mom about how we have been in our house for 4 months and I still haven't figured out what to do with my lame sized closet at the end of our hallway (it isn't deep enough to even hold a monopoly game in. Lame) and my genius mom says, "why don't you put pegboard on the wall with hooks and have that be the dress up closet."  LIGHTBULB turns on.

Today I went to homedepot and spent $24.00 (dang hooks get ya. $6.49 for a sheet of pegboard(48"x48") $17.51 for all the hooks ) I bet I can get hooks at dollar store....hmm.
I spent 5 minutes installing the board and hooks and then hung up all the dress up stuff.  15 minutes and I have more room in the kids closets/under beds and have an organized dress up closet that I  don't care if it stays organized in or not Love.

Thanks Mom for the idea! 


  1. This is an awesome idea, I am going to keep this in mind for my future :). Your mom is pretty great!

  2. So now I am pretty sure I am going to have to come over and play dress up with your girlies. :o)
